Surgery complication: You have had multiple surgical complications since your original cystocoele repair. Post surgery the healing process can cause a major change in the anatomy from adhesions & scarring when incurring multiple subsequent surgeries from complications and possible infection from mesh use. No, this is not completely normal and a 2nd opinion is warranted with a GYN MD Urogynecologist.
